Som Tam Nua

Highly recommended

Photo of Som Tam Nua

What we say: 4.5 stars

Som Tam Nua might be wearing the flashy clothes of a Bangkok hipster, but underneath beats the heart of an Isaan grandma.

This place keeps the seats packed with classic som tam, available in multiple different iterations (including with freshwater crab, with salted shrimp, or with fermented fish), crispy fried chicken wings with a potent roasted chilli sauce, and marinated grilled pork neck.

Spicier and tarter than central Thai cuisine, Isaan food is best mopped up with a basket of sticky rice, rolled up into bite-sized balls with your fingers and dipped into a favourite dish.

Highly recommended. With dishes 65-200 baht, Som Tam Nua is good value for money.
